Hello Gateway Reader, it’s been awhile. You might have noticed that after a pretty fast and furious start of publishing articles, the Gateway has become pretty quiet the past few months.
Well, life in a pandemic can be strange, and ultimately I just wasn’t in the right state of mind to produce content that I felt was up to the quality of the blog’s vision. That said, after a few months, I have something new to share with you.
Originally, when I conceived “The Gateway”, it was to be a Podcast where I would describe a current issue in North Bay, link it to the city’s history, and envision the best possible outcome for the future. Ultimately, the complexities of recording, producing, and publishing a podcast seemed intimidating, and I pivoted to the blog.
Well, I’m proud to announce the launch of Gateway Radio, a podcast for the people of North Bay. In season 1, we’ll explore the city’s past, including the city’s name, stories of shipwrecks and caviar, and the city’s first bank robbery.
Now if you’re a regular reader of the blog, you’re already familiar with those stories. But fear not! I’ll be adding content to the podcasts not found in the accompanying article, and speaking with guests who can help us understand the story better.
Episode 1 of Gateway Radio, “What’s in a Name?” covers the naming of the city, and the reason North Bay became the district’s population centre. It’s already up om spotify, in about a week, you’ll be able to find it wherever you listen to podcasts, but if you can’t wait, you can CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO GATEWAY RADIO EPISODE 1. I’m thrilled about the launch of Gateway Radio, and can’t wait to share more stories about North Bay with you!
